Man accused of killing for $30
By Casey Northcutt
Paducah, KY – A Paducah man faces murder charges after stabbing his cousin over a 30 dollar payment. Walter George admitted to stabbing Artavis Chunn April first after the two men argued over a payment for debris cleanup after the January ice storm. In a preliminary hearing this week, George's attorney, James Mill attempted to persuade Judge Chris Hollowell to consider reducing the murder charge to first degree manslaughter. Mill argued his client didn't intend on killing Chunn. Hollowell, however, denied the request. George's next appearance in circuit court is set for June 19.
